MUN, CNA team up to examine student needs accommodation

October 8, 2013

Memorial University and the College of the North Atlantic have published a report about how to accommodate students with individual learning needs associated with disabilities and/or mental health issues. The report stems from a recommendation included in a MUN 2011 Teaching and Learning Framework: to review and strengthen the university’s support services for vulnerable students. Researchers completed 265 individual consultations, a literature review, and an environmental scan to identify key findings and priorities. “The report articulates the need for an ecological model recognizing Memorial as a community within a community and supporting the efforts of our members as they work collaboratively to ensure well-being for everyone,” says Doreen Neville, MUN’s AVP Academic.
